What came first, Human-Life. Human-Disease, [Were all the viruses/germs just waiting for man/woman to evolve]?

Viruses and germs evolved alongside the species. Some new ones came along too, some went extinct. For those newer virus and germs, just see how things like flu change every year. Their lifecycles are fast enough to evolve quickly. So some viruses which previously couldn't infect people had a mutation at some point which allowed them to adapt to the human body.
So neither came first. They lived along side each other.

What came first were molecules that could replicate, eventually forming RNA, then DNA.
Individuals do not evolve at all. There was never a first human - man or woman - only populations evolve; it takes generations.

any germs evolved the ability to jump from one species to another. The flu for example originated in birds and pigs. Then they mutated and started to infest humans. The AIDS virus originally infected monkeys, and then they mutated so that affected chimpanzees. Chimps got it by hunting monkeys, and humans got the virus by hunting chimps.
Most bacteria are harmless. Bacteria were the first organisms to evolve on earth. They have been around since at least 3.2 billion years ago. Humans are mammals, and the first mammals did not appear on earth until about 200 million years ago. Modern humans did not exist until about 200,000 years ago.

Obviously, humans had to come first. Without humans you cannot have human diseases.
Viruses cannot evolve prior to their hosts. Although viruses are not living organisms but occupy a poorly-defined, grey area between life and the inanimate. However, this should not lead to the false conclusion they evolved first. Viruses are often very host-specific and can only evolve after the host they will infect has evolved.
The term 'germs' is neither scientific nor medical. The term refers to living organisms that are parasites or pathogens of humans. They include bacteria, protoctists and fungi. They tend not to be as host-specific as viruses. Many of these microorganisms can have existed prior to humans. They will not have been waiting for humans as you seem to think. They will have opportunistically infected humans if the human body provides an environment in which they can exist.

Disease, of course. The pathogens weren't waiting, though. They were busy infecting and attacking our ancestors. Look up

Human life came first, then corruption came because of rebellion.
They lied to you.
They lied to all of us.
It was an easy lie to believe, because we have prehistoric evidence of the lie staring us in the face: I mean, we have the dinosaurs, right?
This may change your mind (or not... depending on what you WANT to believe):
The word 'dinosaur' came from two Greek words that mean 'terrible lizard': a word made up in the 1800s to describe reptile fossils.
The word 'fossil' is from the French for 'dug up'.
Under the forces of extreme pressure, everything that was engulfed in mud during the world-wide flood turned into stone.
For about a year and a half minerals permiated plant and animal tissue. The mud also became stone as it compressed under the weight of billions of tons of water.
- Stone cannot be dated.
- Once around the sun is a year: you cannot hold up a rock and decide how many times it has been around the sun.
*When a fish dies, it rots or gets eaten.*
It does NOT turn into a fossil.
But there are fish fossils everywhere on the planet (even on the tops of mountains).
Every fossil in the world is the result of the world wide flood. Period.
*Before the flood everything lived ten times longer*
and reptiles grew huge.
I used to work with reptiles: among many things I learned about them was that they NEVER stop growing as long as they live.
Pre-flood the air had 50% more oxygen in it.
Hyper-oxygenated air; the world was like a hyperbaric chamber, everything lived longer because of the air quality.
We know this because we have air samples from before the flood; extracted from bubbles trapped in fossilized sap (amber).
Adam lived until he was 930. Noah was 600 when he built the Ark (Google Noah's Ark Turkey - a tourist attraction since the 1970's A.D.).
Believing in lies about evolution makes you guilty of making God out to be a liar. This is slander against the Most High: spiritual treason.
You've heard of bacteria 'evolving'?
No such thing: simply, the hardier bacteria were never killed off by the antibiotic in the first place. The weaker bacteria were. All that's left is 'resistant' bacteria. They were never subject to antibiotics to begin with. They never 'evolved'.
Want to see evolution?
If God wants to raise children for Abraham from the stones He can do it.
He doesn't need any of us.
He can change what is in the blink of an eye.... He doesn't need millenia.
